Agenda

This course focuses, among others, on the following topics:

  • Sequencing overview
  • Genome and Transcriptome Assembly
  • Assembly QC

Note: During the class sessions many aspects of the material will be illustrated live via a login to Ada. Attendees are welcome to follow these parts with their own laptops. They will need to configure their laptops to use the TAMULink wireless network. Relevant details on this can be found at: http://tamulink.tamu.edu/
